Hammer on or pick the high e string during sweeping

Do the pros like becker and vai hammer on or pick the high e string if they're sweeping an arpeggio with two notes on it? Is it just preference?

Shallow and pedantic.

It's mainly preference and sometimes about tone, if you try you can get a real snap off the top note in a sweep by up-picking it and then pulling off when you descend.
R.I.P. My Signature. Lost to us in the great Signature Massacre of 2014.
